, could get heated tonight. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs, moderating this debate. >> jim: i'm jim lehrer. i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates, between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice-presidential, are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments, with two-minute answers for the first question. then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means. but i made the final selections. and for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments, as i announced in advance, will be three on the economy and one each on health care, the role of government and governing, with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics
." this week we have jonathan, tracy, todd, jim is here, and joining us this week we have sally cohen. welcome to all of you. jim, i'll start with you. why do you like this two-year plan for high school kids? what do you like about it? >> everybody pays taxes, whether they own a home or not, whether they have children or not, everybody pays for education, and every year they get worse education and it costs more. we've dumbed down our school program to rush kids through the system. why not do it the other way? why not had let the achieving kids rush through the system and get away from this burgeoning ed accuracy? beyond that, we're spending money on things that aren't being productive for our economy. let these achieving students, send them the message that if you achieve you will be rewarded. the idea we're going to get any of this taxpayer money back is kind of a mirage. taxpayers never get any money back. it will move on to the next boondoggle. i think it's a good idea. >> half of property taxes go to schools to be fair. tracy, the kids issue, you can get them out of your house two years e
will vote for me, then i promise i will fight just as hard in a second term. >> jim: governor romney. >> thank you, jim. mr. president. thank you for tuning in this evening. thanksgiving an important election. i am concerned about america. i am concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. i -- i know this is bigger than election about the two of us, as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. this lrkz is about the course of america. what kind of america dowrpt to have for yourself and for your children? there are two very different paths that we began speakerring about. we will have two more presidential debates and a vice-presidential debate. and we will talk about the two paths. and they lead in very different directions. it is not just the words. you can look at the record. there is no question in my mind, if the president were to be re-elected, you will continue to see a middle-class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. you will see chronic unemployment. we have 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%. if i am p
, that that wasn't discussed? >> i would have liked for jim lehrer to talk about it because we are facing what our secretary of defense, president obama's secretary of defense has described as a devastating impact it our national defense if this sequestration goes through. for the benefit of our viewers, it was a biproduct of the select committee that didn't succeed. and so this draconian cuts in both defense and nondefense is supposed to take place on the first of january. it would devastate our defense. we need the president to come and sit down with us. we have said, mr. president, come and lead. you are the commandener chief. that's your most important responsibility. please, sit down with us. we can avoid this sequestration, which could devastate the defense of our nation. we really have asked him to do that. and his response has been that he would do that if we agree to raise taxes to start with. that's not the way bill clinton negotiated. that's not the way -- that ronald reagan negotiated. that's know the way i have ever negotiated. >> greta: you imagine president clinton, his name came up

go along with jim lehrer. >> does anyone think it's strange that juan is defending pbs? >> i'm not saying. >> that's it for us, thanks for watching, have a great weekend, bye. >> did mitt romney's post debate victory hit a speed bump with the unemployment rate? we'll break down what the numbers mean. this is special report. good evening, i'm bret baier. president obama is hailing the jobs report, showing a drop from 8.1% to 7.8, as a sign the country has come too far to turn back now. his republican challenger says the new numbers are not the sign of a true recovery, in fact, he says they're telling a far different story. the government's household survey says that 873,000 people entered the work force. but the employer survey found 114,000 new jobs created, 10,000 of those in government. so, the difference, about 760,000 are apparently not full-time stable jobs, what's known as the real unemployment mark, the unemployed and those too discouraged to look for work remains unchanged at 14.7%. white house correspondent wendell goler begins our coverage of the report and the spi
at him. >> steve: he would look at jim lehrer like he is taking too much time. >> brian: i thought it was telling and you saw a guy that did one thing and i thought the b.b.c. katy k who never said anything nice about a republican. president obama has spent millions was dollars trying to show that governor romney was not worthy of being president. governor romney showed he was worthy and he is competent and all of that money was wasted to any of the 60 million who watched. >> steve: that's the beauty of seeing them side by side unfiltered and uninterrupt no commercials. in 30 second sound bites you can try to defend or define your opponent and that's what the president has done. last night, gretchen, when the president of the united states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true and keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe

. they also eat babies. obama truly is the drone president. the real variable is time. will jim lerher prevent the empty walk-about? mitt needs to hit hard. benghazi, bam. high unemployment, you kill a pipeline, bam. greece crumbles under entitlement, and you bloat government more? bam. all you need is facts. after that, obama probably shake his head. think of clooney. clooney will think of him. eva will want to cradle him. matt damon will sleek naked at the moon. yes, obama seeks sympathy. along with a hand sheikh. box for his things. maybe two. there is the nobel peace prize. we have andrea in denver, colorado, which is a state, i believe. there you are. >> andrea: the 57t 57th. >> greg: it is. in my mind, the focus has to be on libya, but this is all about domestic issues. are they going to change the format so we address the most important topic of the week or month or year? >> andrea: greg, unfortunately, i don't think so. if you look at the format now, it's all on the economy. if i were jim lerher i'd have more flexibility. it's dominating the headlines finally. if i'm romney, i'd bring
blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been painted in the media and by the obama campaign for the last seven or eight months. and then the person they saw last night. that's why i think it was so effective for mitt romney because people were so surprised. wait, like who is this guy? this is not the guy we thought he was. and so he had a great debate. incumbents presidents usually don't do well on the first debate in their election year. so obama will have a couple more chances. no doubt, there is only one person in america who thinks he won the debate.
a really bad wedgey at a press school. >> jon: on the panel, judy miller. cal thomas, jim pinkerton and kirsten powers. i'm rick folbaum. we're on right now. >>> has recent events in the middle east given you any pause on the government that have followed arab spring? >> i said at the time this is going to be a rock did i path. the question presumes we could have stopped this wave of change. i think it was absolutely the right thing to do align ourselves with democracy. universal rights. a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance, but i was pretty certain and continues to be pretty certain there are going to be bumps in the road. in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> rick: president obama on 60 minutes and numerous remarks on cairo attacks and bump in the road comments ignored by the media and steve had a follow-up on that comment. >> they never follow up with the president. fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibit by steve croft. they say the organized principle is islam. it's not just islam but extremist w
to jim lehrer. romney wants do go after obama's record. this are plenty of zingers. in the past several weeks, both campaigns have been trying to lower spectateses for their performance, mitt romney appears to have won that. the gal hop poll -- gallup poll shows most americans think president obama will win the debates which is what romney wanted people to think so he could overcome lower expectations and appear to overachieve tonight but it shows a certainant of doubt in the american public about his debate skills. he has reached a point in the last few days where he recognizes there is a industry amount riding on this and he has to show to the american people he is a capable, able, and likable would-be president who provides necessary specifics to persuade people that there is a reasonable affirmative vote they can cast in his favor. that does not exclude his ability to go after president obama and make the case with the biden remark from yesterday about the middle class being buried, or the president's remarks about redistribution going back several years, that the obama agenda will

at notes and looking for jim lehr to bail him out. >> barack obama is used to being sheltered and coddled by the media. and by those surrounding him. tonight he wasn't able to rely on that kind of comfort zone he's used to. the reason he seems to inept tonight and kind of disenchanted and disconnected is finally there is a record that he can be called out on and that is what mitt romney was supposed to do and what he did. he succeeded tonight in calling barack obama out on broken promises and can't wait for the next debate. and failed poll sthaiz barack obama didn't want to repeat z again without having that teleprompter in front of him to basically tell him what to say. that is why we saw this ineptness tonight. >> sean: did he not have an answer for $716 billion he took out of medicare. he didn't have an answer for social security. this is not an entitlement. this is what? a return orn investment? welfare is an entitlement. on every point he lost on points, lost on style. and i was actually shocked you know we're told the president is this great communicator but he's only good at delive

. jim i'm going to stop subsidy to pbs. i like pbs and i like you, too. but i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> the fact is if you're running the race the way you describe, governor and it's not possible to come up with enough deductions and loophole that's only fikt high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class, it's math. it's arithmetic. >> republicans insist the policies are failures and democrats say governor romney doesn't have a specific plan. republican senator johnson joins us from denver. you've been in the bubble of the debate. and most people sh most polls which are inaccurate show governor romney won this debate. and i'm curious what you think overall impact will be for the candidate? >> this is a really great performance by the governor. and i think it resets the campaign giving him on opportunity to take his case to the american people. and so mup of what people have heard, seen, read about mitt romney comes through a filter, tonight he has a chance to draw a contrast between his vi
wanted to have answered. it was an evening of substance. i am happy that jim lehrer was willing to ask us our positions on issues and we could describe those. it was not a big gotcha night from the moderator, but instead, a chance for the president and i to go toe to toe on important issues people care about. i thought it was a helpful night n. final analysis, people will decide what kind of america they want. >> sean: congressman ryan, you are up next. there have been a lot of controversial statement, but to save time, in recent weeks, joe biden has said that the middle class, the last four years has been buried. today, he went out there and said he's going to raise taxes, yes, we plan to raise taxes over $twenty1 trillion. your reaction? >> he was half right. it's about $2 trillion. but every now and then, joe is candid. he drops the veil. he was right when he aid the middle class has been buried four years. yes, they are proposing a massive tax increase. two years ago, when they said they were going to prevent a tax increase because of a slow economy, the economy is growing slower than

are the facts really. jim angle has a fact check for us live from washington. >>> governor romney's tax plans would reduce rates by 20% across the board. he would keep it deficit neutral by trimming some of the $1.2 trillion year-end tax ducks. president obama argues there aren't enough deductions that only hit the rich so romney would have to hit the middle class. listen to this exchange. >> independent studies looking at this said the only way to meet governor romney's pledge are not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit is by burden evening middle class families, the average middle class family with children would pay about $2,000 more. >> i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower taxes on middle income families. you cite a study. there are six other studies that look to the study you describe and say it's completely wrong. >> reporter: the president is referring to a study by the tax anthropology sent wer which shows which tax deductions to put on the table on which to take off. the first study said it would result in the $2,000 ta
of that i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things to pbs i like big bird and i like you too. i'm not going to stop borrowing money from china to pay for it. >> i thought lehrer was big bird. first let's go with the president looking down while romney is speaking. >> i'm comparing this to 2008. this wasn't a good thing. typically when he looks down he is trying show his disagreement. i don't agree what you are saying. tight jaw, clinched lip. there is also a level of intimidation i think in parts of the clip where he doesn't feel good about what's going on with romney. he feels insecure with romney. >> bill: shouldn't he be looking at romney isn't that much better body language. >> much better. more powerful to look at him. >> bill: looking away showing weakness. >> you don't deserve my eye contact therefore i'm not going to give it to you. >> bill: condescending. >> right and that's not what you need to be doing here. >> bill: comes across to the viewer because they are watching split screen. presentation to governor romney. >> use very powerful g

"the washington post" opls buds man admitted a obama by as at one time. and reporters were scolded and urged to be more balance and fair and not so proobama. he aop lee admitted the newspaper's vie last. isn't that an

and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connection that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we can hope. during the r
